  • Posted on

Naples, Florida is a hotspot for coffee enthusiasts and foodies alike. Among the myriad of dining options, two newcomers have quickly captured the hearts and taste buds of locals and visitors alike: Acopio and Bontà Bakery. Let's take a closer look at these culinary gems that are redefining the coffee and dining experience in Naples.

Acopio: A Taste of Colombia in Every Sip

Nestled in the heart of Naples, Acopio brings a taste of Colombia to the shores of Florida. Stepping into Acopio is like entering a cozy Colombian coffeehouse, where the aroma of freshly roasted beans fills the air and friendly smiles greet you at every turn. But what truly sets Acopio apart is its commitment to providing an authentic Colombian coffee experience.

Founded by Colombian native Juan David Rojas, Acopio aims to share the rich coffee culture of his homeland with the people of Naples. Rojas meticulously sources the finest coffee beans from Colombia's diverse regions, ensuring that each cup boasts a unique flavor profile that reflects the country's coffee heritage.

One sip of Acopio's signature Colombian brew is enough to transport you to the sun-drenched slopes of the Andes or the lush valleys of the Amazon. From velvety smooth espressos to bold and aromatic pour-overs, every drink at Acopio is a testament to the artistry and passion that goes into crafting the perfect cup of coffee.

Additionally, the arepas and empanadas are excellent. We tried the chicken and beef empanadas and the vegetable arepa. Both were fresh and delicious.

But Acopio is more than just a coffee shop—it's a place to gather, connect, and savor the simple pleasures of life. Whether you're enjoying a leisurely brunch with friends or seeking a quiet moment of reflection, Acopio's inviting ambiance and warm hospitality make it the perfect destination for coffee lovers and food enthusiasts alike.

Bontà Bakery: Where Every Bite Tells a Story

Located in the middle of Naples’ foodie scene on 5th Avenue South lies another culinary treasure: Bontà Bakery. Tucked away in the old Regina’s Ice Cream location in Naples, Bontà Bakery is a haven for those with a sweet tooth and a passion for artisanal pastries.

The bakery is under the culinary direction of third-generation Italian Pastry Chef Marco Berard and is a celebration of traditional European baking techniques and locally sourced ingredients. From flaky croissants to decadent chocolate eclairs, every creation at Bontà Bakery is a labor of love, crafted with precision and care.

Whether it's the delicate flavors of a pistachio macaron or the comforting warmth of a freshly baked brioche, every bite at Bontà Bakery is infused with history, culture, and passion.

We tried a prosciutto sandwich heaped high with delicious ham on a light bun. We also tried their excellent focaccia which I highly recommend.

Acopio and Bontà Bakery are more than just places to grab a cup of coffee or a bite to eat—they're culinary destinations that celebrate the diverse traditions that make up Naples Florida. So come explore Naples and grab a delicious bite of coffee and a bite to eat.
